I went into the cat room this afternoon to get the kittens ready to go and found Frosty, the siamese kitten had died. I have no idea what caused it. He was acting more clingy last night than usual but the cat was always clingy. I feel badly that I didn't give him more attention but I thought he was just being annoying at the time. Maybe he was feeling badly and trying to tell me. One thing is for sure, that was an awful phone call to make afterwards. (I had to tell the girl who fosters with me) I ended up taking Pumpkin and Nutmeg as Raven had a runny eye and I wanted to be on the safe side rather than have her go to an event and make it worse. (stress from events can make little kittens sicker if they have even something minor) Everyone else is acting normally. Saffron really needs to be completely healthy so he can be adopted out. Everyday that he is here, is another day to get a little more attached. I remembered to get a few pictures of Nutmeg and Pumpkin before I left but haven't gotten them on the computer yet. My husband still thinks both Pumpkin and Raven are cute. I think he needs his eyes checked. ;)

I'm sorry to hear about Frosty, and hope you don't feel any blame. Sometimes it happens, even if you are able to catch the problem!

We had some kittens act strange, and seemed sick, so we took them to the vet. They were diagnosed with luekemia, and it was to late. My wife and I cried all the way home, and the next day they were gone. All the other litters were fine, and grew up to be healthy.

After some time we found homes for over twenty cat's. Not before they got into my prized record collection. I still have the records, and think of only good memories, when I listen to them.

I hope the other cats are fine, and that you are alright. I wish you a better day tomorrow.

Sorry, I hope this is what you meant about Emailing me.
Let me know if it is.

Blessed Be,

That is so sad. Awww, poor little dear - she probably had something going on since birth. So sorry you had to go through this.

Beth said...

Oh, poor little Frosty. Lisa is probably right, that she had something going on for a while. I could never foster animals, because I feel bummed just reading about Frosty. :(

Hugs, Beth
